who was he? the blues musician, jazz musician, playing in the honky tonks and all that. and then one day, according to tom dorsey, god spoke to him and said, "no, no, no. "you're going to stop playing this music. we're going to bring this into the church." now, at that time, i mean, gospel music was resisted. who are these people bringing this boogey-woogey music into the church? there was a lot of opposition to it. but slowly, over time, you know, cream rises to the top. and you couldn't hold back this avalanche, this feeling, this desire, because it does speak to the people in a way that, you know, no other music form in our church really speaks to us. [choir singing] the lyrics of gospel music being scripturally based do give a message of hope. but gospel music in and of itself has its power from also the musical accompaniment.
